After losing two early wickets against Bangladesh, the odds were stacked against South Africa. But then the batsman Quinton de Kock showed up, and everyone knew he was here to stay because of his grace, power, and accuracy.

The fact that De Kock has scored three centuries in this tournament’s World Cup version elevates his feat even more. This puts him in striking distance of Rohit Sharma‘s World Cup record of five centuries. The cricket community is watching De Kock’s pursuit of this record with great interest, and his reliability serves as an example to young cricketers all across the globe. Rohit Sharma scored 5 hundreds in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.
After announcing his retirement from the 50-over format, De Kock’s performance in this World Cup takes on an extra tragic quality. As a result, every innings he plays is remembered fondly by cricket fans. South Africa’s good foundation for another huge World Cup total was further aided by De Kock’s century, which he reached in only 101 balls. It was a lesson in how to build an inning and gave the Proteas some much-needed solidity. De Kock’s innings clearly set the tone for South Africa’s quest for victory as the match progressed at the historic Wankhede Stadium. We have to now wait and see if De Kock manages to break the record of Rohit Sharma.
